Christmas Treats Re-cap, Part 3

Also for our Sunday School Christmas party:

-Peanut Blossoms
This is definite favorite recipe from childhood. My mom used to make these using the little chocolate stars, so I always called them Star Cookies. I think I enjoy these out of everything that the Christmas dessert table has to offer. Call me a nostalgic sap, but these are the best because of the memories attached to them! 

3 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter at room temperature
2/3 cups creamy peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 bag Hershey's Kisses (unwrap about 30 to start with)

Preheat oven to 375. Cream together butter, peanut butter, and both sugars. Add eggs. Blend in dry ingredients. Mix well. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls. Roll each ball in a small bowl filled with some white sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven and press a Kiss onto each cookie so they crack around the edges. Baked another 2-5 minutes longer until golden.
